Marr, Ana, Chiwara, Charles and Munyuki, Elijah (2011) Financial services for SME fisheries: the case study of South Africa. Project Report. University of Greenwich, Greenwich Academic Literature Archive (GALA).
The primary objective of the South Africa case study has been to assess the availability of and access to financial services by SMEs in the fisheries sector. Fieldwork took place during 6-12 March 2011 in Cape Town, Port Elizabeth and Port St Francis, while desk research provided background information about the overall context of the economy and the fisheries sector in South Africa. This summary highlights key findings surrounding three areas: (1) overall context of finance for fisheries in South Africa; (2) current external and internal constraints to the development of the squid and tuna sectors; and (3) financial models for SMEs in the fisheries sector.
